What kind of a person steals a pumpkin? Up until last week, there was a beautiful, giant pumpkin adorning the front entrance of my house. It was placed there as a recognition and celebration of the season. To show passersby, friends and neighbors that Fall and Halloween are upon us... Continue reading

Untied States Democrat Senators are refusing to participate in just about any type of legislative activity these days This would include consideration of the (un) Affordable Health Care Act, which by most standards needs major (and I mean major) changes before it withers away. Democrat Leaders have done about all... Continue reading

BY: Jack O. Nutter Tax Reform. Seems so obvious. For what are we waiting? There is a dire need to overhaul the Federal income tax system. I do not see any disagreement on this notion. The tax code is a mess and littered with a bunch of garbage and ineffective... Continue reading

Donald Trump was elected, in part, to drain the Washington swamp. That was a good idea. He not only has failed but he has created a quagmire, and a quagmire in which he is stuck. Difficult to imagine and to believe that things have gotten so just plain fouled up.... Continue reading

Financial markets have been focused on recent increases in interest rates and the ones to come. The Federal Reserve after keeping rates near zero during the tenure of Mr. Obama helping to finance massive government borrowing has decide to act. Not necessarily sinister but curious. Overlooked to a certain degree... Continue reading

Move over Health Care--- It is time for what really matters. Tax Reform. Unlike tax reduction, tax reform means fundamental restructuring of the way the system works and the incidence imposed for the pleasure we all get by contributing our earnings for the greater and lesser good. It has been... Continue reading

One for my dear family members has revised a prediction that Mr. Trump would be out in six months, now the opinion is ninety days. Not going to happen but it reflects wishful thinking on the part of many disgruntled people. President Trump is a hard person to figure out.... Continue reading

Now the Inauguration ceremony is over, it is time to govern, or so it would seem. However, Mr. Trump does not seem to read the papers to know he is actually the President of all Americans. (Although some seem not to recognize him as President at all) The campaign is... Continue reading

President Barack Obama gave a “ farewell” address last night. I did not watch, nor do I care. I have not believed anything Mr. Obama has said for some time. He has a week left in office and then the long antagonistic national nightmare will be over. For a long... Continue reading

President Obama in acts of desperation is showing a callous disregard, and his own insecurity, for the election results by issuing midnight regulations, foreign policy edits and policy directives. He simply believes he knows best and has always known best about everything. There is no room for anyone who holds... Continue reading

The election of Donald Trump to be the next President has created a jumbled, frenzied, uncertain and speculative political environment. Mr. Trump was the unexpected winner, a vast majority of political professionals, pundits, pollsters, party officials, elected officials, media were surprised with the results and there is a residual vocal...

I voted today. Neither Mr. Trump nor Mrs. Clinton should be President, although for different reasons. I cast my vote for Mr. Giant as the Better Alternative. Even thought this kind, gentle, smart furry cat will not win, I am a peace with my selection. Mrs Clinton will most likely... Continue reading

Mr. Obama has once again disappointed, interfered where he has no business and acted to demean the office he holds. Yesterday, on a campaign visit to North Carolina, (is he still running?) he more or less denounced his own FBI director for notifying Congress that potential information on the investigation...

The election is less than a week away. It is hard to believe there are undecided voters. Unless you have been in a coma for the last year or so, there is plenty of time to choose. What else would a person need to know? Mrs. Clinton is an unlikeable... Continue reading

I am extremely happy that today is my birthday. I have been observing it in what is the annual ritual of the birthday month celebration. Even though I am closer to the end by far than the beginning, I am so blessed for each day. Continue reading

The home “stretch” for President is underway or better said the home “stench”. It is difficult to say anything positive or feel positive about anything political. The recent e-mails from the Clinton Campaign leaked out or stolen and released show a path of moral bankruptcy, corruption, collusion and campaign violations... Continue reading

In watching this car wreck of a Presidential campaign, taxes have become a focal point. We know that Mrs. Clinton has no boundaries in the lust for high income taxes. Since about fifty percent of all taxpayers filers do not pay any income taxes, that means the rest of us... Continue reading

The disclosure of information from the 1995 state tax return of Donald Trump filled the papers, Internet and airwaves for the past two days. Seems like he had a massive tax loss 21 years ago. Just to say again, 21 years ago. I almost feel sorry for someone who has... Continue reading

"You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic -- you name it -----"Now, some of those folks -- they are irredeemable, but thankfully they are not America." So speaks... Continue reading

A well-known professional football player has made a personal and public statement about his feelings of the state of the country. San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick has chosen to remain seated (or kneeled down in another game) during the playing of the American National Anthem. To paraphrase him, he just...

A small news item from last week did not get enough attention. It is an item that is crucial to the national economic health but largely ignored by those running for national office. It seems the national debt blew past $19.5 trillion with a blink of the eye. This is... Continue reading

Congress has been in recess for more than a month now. It has been quiet and peaceful. Hotter than blazes most of the time but one can endure the weather for the most part. It will soon end. The gang will be back right after Labor Day but not for... Continue reading

It is currently the vogue to bash Donald trump. He makes a tempting target. A man full of himself with little substance gives a big target for ridicule and bombastic attack. Most of my friends go out of their way to not pass up a chance to say something derogatory... Continue reading
